Laura Trott and Becky James collected medals on the final day of the Track Cycling World Championships as Great Britain ended the event with five medals.

Trott took silver in the women's omnium for the second successive year, and the Olympic champion was pleased with her performance in Colombia.

"I am actually happy with how this has turned out. Although I would have absolutely loved to have won, I'm really pleased with how I got on and how I am improving in each event," she said.

James, meanwhile, won bronze in the keirin, with the defending champion losing out to Kristina Vogel, who won a third gold medal at the event.

"I'm really happy. It is always disappointing not to win, but Kristina Vogel has been flying all season. She deserved it," James said.

Britain's five medals at the World Championships were all won by women, and it is the first time since 1988 that any of the men have failed to win a medal, with Jason Kenny coming up short in the sprint and keirin and Ed Clancy finishing fifth in the omnium.
